    Flex expands in India


    Global supply chain and manufacturing solutions provider Flex on Wednesday announced opening a global business services (GBS) centre in Coimbatore. This is Flex’s third GBS centre in India besides existing facilities in Chennai and Pune.
    Located at the KGISL SEZ in Saravanampatti, the facility has a capacity of around 800-1000 people across shifts. Like other Flex GBS centres, this will provide services in support of the company’s global operations in the areas of procurement & supply chain, finance, engineering & quality, program management, IT, HR and others.
    Flex, a key supplier to Apple, has been operating in India since 2001 and with over 5,000 employees. In addition to the three GBS centres, Flex also operates two manufacturing facilities in Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu and two global services and solutions facilities in Bengaluru.
    Ashutosh Arora, vice-president & general manager at Flex GBS India, says Coimbatore provides the right building blocks of skilled talent pool, government support and good infrastructure.
